Do Siblings Always Need to Be Best Friends?

Today, I am at Raising Homemakers talking about sibling relationships. While I know many of you long for your children to all have deep relationships with one another, I want to offer another take on these relationships and how each unique personality may play into which children “click” and which children do not.  While I do believe it is very important that siblings be friends and get along well, I do not think it is reasonable for all of them to be best friends.  Take some time to read the post and feel free to offer your thoughts!

  1. thank you for this post!! I agree – as a daughter who was forced to have my sister be my best friend….and made to feel guilty if she wasn’t!….I’m seeking to put a different emphasis on sibling relationships in our home. (my 4 children are as different as can be!) I’m glad they get along – and we require they learn how to work together and be kind to one another – but if they are not the best of friends, that is okay. Especially as children maturing at such different rates, their relationships will change quite a bit throughout childhood.
